Hopefully, will just need the bodywork looking as good as the engine.

I had to keep looking at it parked up at work and I couldn't let it deteriorate any more, hopefully getting the primer in paint soon.

First 4 pics are just after the engine swap and the cbr600 bike carbs fitted, the second photo is after the wiring and engine bay was tidied up. It goes like a dream, need to fine tune the carbs but the acceleration is brilliant.

Looking good but there seems to be some disconnected connectors - what dizzy are you using?

The only loose connections are the ones for the injection system, they are all cable tied up out the way though. The standard dizzy from the GT.
